Administrative staff to be honored Feb. 7

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Board of Education has proclaimed Feb. 7, 2013, as Principals, Assistant Principals, Administrative Staff and Central Office Supervisors Appreciation Day in Cumberland County Schools.

The resolution, unanimously approved at the Jan. 24 meeting of the BOE, states, "Whereas, Principals, Assistant Principals, Administrative Staff and Central Office Supervisors have a great amount of responsibilities including leading, observing, evaluating, mentoring and much more;

"Whereas, Principals, Assistant Principals, Administrative Staff and Central Office Supervisors are exceptional leaders who provide support and guidance to students, teachers and other school employees in our district; and

"Whereas, they keep the focus clearly on established goals for the school and its students; and

"Whereas, they create strategies for making their schools the very best they can be; and

"Whereas, they seek support from parents and community so their students get the very best education possible; and

"Whereas, Principals, Assistant Principals, Administrative Staff and Central Office Supervisors strive to enhance the learning and working environment for everyone in our school;

"Now, therefore be it resolved that the Cumberland County Board of Education hereby adopts February 7, 2013, as Principals, Assistant Principals, Administrative Staff and Central Office Supervisors Appreciation Day in all our schools; and

"Be it further resolved that the Board expresses deep appreciation to these employees in our system and encourages the students and staff to join us in expressing appreciation to the leaders of Cumberland County Schools."

“We don’t take great leadership for granted in our schools and showing appreciation to our staff is vital in creating the atmosphere we desire,” said Director of Schools Aarona VanWinkle. “ I can not overemphasize their importance to the success of our schools. ”

The school system will use a Medieval theme to honor these educational professionals, with student members of the A-Team leading appreciation day activities in the schools.

There are eight appreciation days scheduled throughout the year to honor and celebrate school system employees. Although appreciation days are led by students, there are opportunities for the community to join in. The A-Team urges citizens to take time to express appreciation to the principal, assistant principals, administrative staff and central office supervisors on Feb. 7.
